Re: O/T...Post Your Pics Here

...I see my oncologist in about 1 month which will be my five year mark, and if he calls me a cancer survivor I will feel a lot better as he is super conservative. Hi kiwiinoz It's good to see you on-line again. Do you have any up-to-date photos of your collection of running shoes -- including thos...

Re: Hello from a new member

Jannine, Give Nuun a go, it is not a "sports drink" as such as it is not full of sugar. It is an electrolyte replacement tablet you put in water to dissolve and drink. An ex member (Brownbagger) who was an avid long distance cyclist put me on to them and I use them a lot now with running. ...

Re: Hello from a new member

Hi Jannine Loosing weight was something I had to worry about too and my biggest way of keeping on top of the nausea was talking anti nausea tablets as soon as any symptoms started. I tried to keep my fluids up as much as I could and I also found that if I kept taking electrolyte supplements I was ah...

Re: Avastin in UK's NHS vs. USA Healthcare

Interesting Article and I still don't get the whole insurance thing in the US. Seems to put people in a position where those that have jobs are forced to decide the level of insurance coverage that you want to pay for. In Australia where I was diagnosed and treated I paid for my treatment. Colon res...

Re: New here My son has colon cancer

I was 39 when I was diagnosed and my family had just lost my Father to cancer just over 1 year prior. I ran, and still do, my own business with about 13 staff at that time. My view on this, is totally based on my own family, is that my Mother was struggling with her own issues, and nobody in my fami...

Re: New on the forum

Hi Claudia With all the surgery are you doing any running? I have had a few months off serious running, and my long runs are now 10km which used to be my short runs. However I have 16 weeks until a Marathon I want to in so have started training again. Did a tempo run yesterday and really enjoyed it ...

Re: What's In a Name

Mark Interesting subject and sounds like you are in a place that many of us have been in. A dark place, where all hope seems gone, and nobody, apart perhaps from the people on this forum can understand you. When I was diagnosed I went from "you have cancer", to "you have stage IV canc...

Re: Beansmama is gone.

I was very saddened to hear this. She fought a good fight, and seems like she beat it to be blindsided by complications.

Re: Reoccuring Digestive issues

Hey Joe, Just like Laura suggests it sounds possibly like adhesions or something causing a blockage. I have had 5 years of similar issues, although not quite as severe. Scans don't really show adhesions, and every time I had a scan I would simply be told I had severe fecal impaction. He could try a ...

Re: New on the forum

There you go Claudia On your feet, eating, things will start to improve from there. Amazing what a difference a week or two will make physically and mentally. Small digestible chunks and you can grind it away. I am 4 weeks after open surgery for adhesions and I can't exercise or run (I love running)...

Re: New on the forum

I always try to view the setbacks as just one more step to the end goal
Recover
Get your strength back
Undergo chemo (maybe)
Ascertain what is happening with the spot on your lung
Get a plan for that
Remain NED

This is just a blip on the road to that

Re: 5 years ago

Hi Susie

I see my Oncologist in February 2018 which will be 5 years from last resection. I expect him not to mention the cured word and to keep me on some sort of surveillance

Re: Adhesion surgery for blockages

Julie No idea where you live but riding a horse into town to get the mail sounds fairly rural. Even more rural and raw than where I grew up in NZ. I started running again on the weekend and will get into some trail runs next year. Who knows, I may even post some pictures if I can get some done. Keep...
